Replacement Internal Cables for HP Officejet 7612

Replacement Internal Cables for HP Officejet 7612

I was experiencing problems with my HP Officejet 7612 after installing off-brand cartridges and the built in printer head cleaning function wasn't sufficing so I removed the print head and cleaned it manually. The process seemed to work so once it happened again I repeated the process but this time when refitting the cables at the back of the print head one of them frayed.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find these specific cables:
WINKIN E230343 AWM 20624 80C 60V VW1

It needs to have a 24 (hard to tell due to fraying) pin connector ideally around 30cm in length. I'd also like to source the same cable with a 12 pin connector in case the other cable is damaged.

I've contacted HP which hasn't been very fruitful, there are seemingly lots of similar cables online but does anyone here possess the knowledge as to which one will fit this printer model?

Any suggestions would be massively appreciated, thank you!

eBay has a ton of them but they are all coming from Hong Kong or similar places. It is just a straight through cable. As long as the connector end fits you should be fine with those.

I'll give them a try and will report back here if they work for future reference!

Thank you for your help! :)
